I was more thinking of spreading the nasty admin work on more
shoulders ...

This is always my problem coming from a non-unix, non-open-source,

Lazy as I am, I wouldn't mind that at all.

Although, in order to really learn it, I'd probably better do it and

A first step would be to update the instructions before i start.
Anybody mind if I update them to show more details for people w/o that
